The lost labyrinth, full of hieroglyphs sculpted for eternity in its endless stone walls is believed to contain all knowledge of ancient Egypt.
What secrets does this legendary giant underground complex contain?
Could this be the most important discovery in human history?
The Labyrinth of Egypt has been described by a number of ancient writers such as Herodotus, Strabo, Diodorus, and Pliny. The labyrinth's age and ancient origins are unclear, but at the time of Herodotus' visit it was more than 1,300 years old.
This legendary complex, named the "Labyrinth" by the ancient Greeks was legendary complex is believed to be an enormous collective tomb of the twelve kings who built it and a resting place for sacred crocodiles. Located at Hawara, about 90 km south of modern Cairo the complex contains secret chambers, passages shrines and tombs.
Herodotus wrote of the Labyrinth in the fifth century B.C. (History, 2.148-49): 'It has twelve covered courts - six in a row facing north, six south - the gates of the one range exactly fronting the gates of the other.
Inside, the building is of two storeys and contains three thousand rooms, of which half are underground, and the other half directly above them.
I was taken through the rooms in the upper storey, so what I shall say of them is from my own observation, but the underground ones I can speak of only from report, because the Egyptians in charge refused to let me see them, as they contain the tombs of the kings who built the labyrinth, and also the tombs of the sacred crocodiles.
A Virtual Exploration of the Lost Labyrinth: Developing a Reconstructive Model of Hawara Labyrinth Pyramid Complex
This paper reports on a case study that explores the possibility of reproducing a destroyed historic site from its remaining artefacts.
Using VR (virtual reality) technologies, we construct a series of low-end, 3D models that are navigable through the Web.
This gives us the opportunity to visualise, explore and present ancient sites in their original form. We focus mainly on the Hawara Labyrinth site.
However, the method developed is generic in that it is applicable to other sites and artefacts that require reconstruction and dissemination using digital technologies.
Also referring to the mythos of the King, SOL- OM -ON , he supposedly employed the use of demons or spirits who built the temple with not a single sound being made, or being emitted from any sort of tools.

I couldn't help but notice from the 'Reconstruction of the Labyrinth' that what one may be looking at is a square zodiac.
You have the 12 houses and many zodiacs have been drawn in a square as opposed to a circle. I do think that when one doesn't link the cosmos via the zodiac one looses a link to the mindset of the ancients.

My first thought also, there are 12 guys per side on the outline, with 4 sphinxes at the corners, indicating the 4 cardinal points (4 heads of the cherubim).
